New Planner Printables

Hey planner girls! I’ve created a few new goodies for my personal sized every day set up and want to share them with you. They can be found on the Free Planner Printables page of the blog. Enjoy!

Bill Tracker – personal size.

A new and improved Online Purchase Tracker – personal size.

Guess what… I also have a Silhouette cut file for you today! Since apparently I have some… “issues”… keeping track of my receipts, I created bag style envelopes, with pretty paper of course, to help me keep organized.

If you need to keep business and personal receipts separate you can add labels or tabs for your different categories as needed.

These can be cut easily with your Silhouette. You’ll just want to download the file, unzip, open with your Silhouette & cut from your choice of pretty paper. To finish it off add some adhesive to the flaps and punch holes to fit your planner. The cut file can also be found on the Free Planner Printables page.

Oh before I forget! I recently added a new version of the Day on 2 pages that I use in my daily set up.  It’s listed as Day On 2 Pages V3. Be sure to check it out.

All planner printables are yours to enjoy, for free. All I ask is

  • Please don’t sell them or try to profit from them in any way
  • Please help me spread kindness. If you come across a fellow planner girl who might benefit from their use, please tell her about my blog and where to find the printables.

Oh! Just one more thing… I would love, love, love it, if when you use the printables and post photos to social media, if you would give me a shout out so I can show your post some love and see my creations in action.

Hugs and happy planning!



Hello March – Planner Layout

It’s been a while since I’ve shared any planner layouts so I thought that the February kit from TPS was as good a reason as any.

The pretty color palette begged to be paired with my nude Filofax, so I reluctantly put away the gorgeous red Kikki K that I carried in February and got busy making this one equally as yummy for March.

As always, I used my handy dandy laminator to make a couple of dashboards and a scrap of that pretty paper made for a great washi card.

2016-02-25 07.14.27

In total I made a dashboard and 4 tabbed dividers from the gorgeous paper that came in the kit.

2016-02-25 07.16.22

I used some of the pretty stickers to decorate my daily inserts. There are a couple of versions of these in the free planner printables section of my blog. Be sure to check them out!

I use my planner as a life tool, not only to track appointments and to-dos, but also to help foster my goal of continued personal growth.

You may have read in some of my prior posts that I’m a huge proponent of CBT, or cognitive behavioral therapy.

If you’re unfamiliar with it, CBT focuses on techniques to help individuals challenge negative thinking patterns and beliefs and replace “errors in thinking such as overgeneralizing, magnifying negatives, minimizing positives and catastrophizing” with “more realistic and effective thoughts, thus decreasing emotional distress and self-defeating behavior”.2016-02-25 07.18.35

Because creating new thinking patterns is an ongoing process, I’ve dedicated a section in my daily planner to it. These are my custom CBT inserts made by Papier My Day on Etsy. I use them to address negative thinking and to work through whatever issue I may be grinding away on. I find it incredibly helpful to have a dedicated place to turn when I find myself struggling with an issue.

And finally, here’s a little trick that I use to prettify that odd area in the back of some of the Filofax planners. If I don’t have a notebook to slip into the slits… Pretty paper to the rescue! I just measure, crease, and tuck it right in. Instant pretty!

As always, thank you for reading and I wish you a beautiful week.



Make Your Own Planner Clips In Minutes

Hello & Happy Monday! I have a quick planner clip tutorial to share with you today.

If you’re like me, you love adding pretty things to your planner. Today I’ll show you how you can easily create your own accessories, like planner clips, for just a couple dollars and in a few short minutes.

2015-11-29 13.15.45

The dollar bins at your local craft store are a great place for finding planner goodies. I picked these up at Michaels. They’re wine bottle gift tags and perfect for this.

2015-11-29 13.16.25

Cut out the image that you want to make a clip out of. I like to leave a bit of a border around it, but either way is fine.

2015-11-29 13.17.55

Once your images are cut out, place them into a laminating sheet, per the manufacturer’s instructions. I use a Scotch laminator and sheets that I got from Amazon.

2015-11-29 13.22.35

It’s a personal preference, but I like to run my laminated items through the laminator twice. Once that’s done, trim them out, being careful to leave a bit around the edges so your lamination doesn’t come apart. With your images cut out and laminated, just hot glue a paperclip of your choice onto the back.

2015-11-29 13.24.01

You can give your planner clips a more finished look be covering the hot glue using a piece of felt, cardstock, or something like that.

2015-11-29 13.27.29

Here I used a small, heart shaped punch out and placed it over the still wet, hot glue.

2015-11-29 13.28.46

Lastly, just clean up any threads of hot glue that might be hanging on.

2015-11-29 13.44.43

Add your new clips into your planner and you’re all set… fabulous, affordable and unique planner clips that you created in just minutes!

2015-11-29 13.33.58

This Week on 1 Page A5 planner inserts, and others, are available for free and can be found right HERE on my blog.

Thanks for reading!

Happy planning,
